Angelina Edwards (AKA Star) of Fayetteville Tennessee opened ColtPixy on ArtFire.com 12-8-08. She makes the cutest polymer clay sculptures, keychains, jewelry, and magnets. Artisan Biography for ColtPixy: "I have studied art and crafts my entire life. I really don't have a favorite medium to work with because I love them all. For many years I did nothing but paint. My favorite mediums are acrylics and watercolor. For a while I was obsessed with quill pens and ink. My husband introduced me to stained glass. I love working with glass but there is a LOT of scrap. I hate wasting anything so soon discovered mosaics. For about 10 years I rarely made anything but mosaics. In the past few years I have discovered that I really am happier not limiting myself to just that. With the freedom of using different mediums came the ability to explore, learn and express myself more freely. Preferring things that are one of a kind, I try to make things that are one of a kind. When I do reproduce something I incorporate subtle differences so that they are not exactly alike. Two roses on a vine are both similar but there are subtle differences that make each unique. Right now my focus is mainly on polymer clay. I am currently the guild master for the Polymer Clay Smooshers Guild." I happen to a proud member of the Polymer Clay Smooshers Guild, and I can tell you, Star is a great guildmaster. Her talent and creativity know no bounds.
Here's what some of her customers have said "My niece loves her necklace and extra keychain you sent her. Thanks so much for the gift card too! Holly", "There are no words for how much I like these bitchy peas. They make me laugh and that is worth millions to me at the moment. Thank you for sharing that talent with me. Shelley", "Thank you so much for my bunny booty and fridge fish! They are awesome!" and "So adorable, thank you so much!". Obviously she knows how to make her customers happy.
